Default First beach gold and new year gold

Decided I needed a little break, so headed to Myrtle Beach for a few days. I never have any luck there, but I just needed to swing the coil anyway. Upon arrival the hotel clerk informs me that they have put sand back on the beach, and of course I'm cussing like a sailor under my breath, thinking oh great that really seals the deal on finding anything. Well I go out under one of the piers find a few coins and the silver and cz earring. Well hey that's okay by me, better than what I usually find. So after the next day my husband tells me to go to an out of the way place, so I "humor" him by going. Well I'm glad I did as the small silver cross pendant and the gold necklace show up. This was all found at the top of the beach with was less likely to have been bother by the sand they were moving in. It was a fun few days. And I got the gold off my back for the year LOL, well I do hope I find some more....Oh there was a junkie pendant attached to the necklace so I am sure that is what I was picking up on the detector.

Sweet necklace and story! That pendant looks pretty good from here, maybe worth a second look or test. Congrats on the gold!

Yes he has a good idea from time to time, lol . But sometimes I just think he doesn't get this hobby and wants me to MD places that are just to far off the grid. But he did good on this one.

The pendant is marked 925, you can see the #'s (with loop) in the right hand corner of the round part.

Well I think sometimes people who don't detect get embarrassed by it.. I know when I first started I was sort of embarrassed to be seen doing it .. next time out.. not so much and now I just ignore people around me pretty much or are just oblivious to them.

No I have not, but I'd love to try another beach sometime. I'm definately not a great beach hunter, I try but I'm more of a dirt lovin' gal. Just love the ocean as long as I'm on land LOL.!

I don't care about people being around as long as they don't talk too much, they are chewing up my time to detect. I just try not to make eye contact, lol.

A very enjoyable vacation Gale. Congrats on the Gold Necklace and all the rest. I hunted Myrtle Beach several years back and only found a little clad on the beach. Trapper
